British period dramas in 2020 gave us lots of memorable performances.
With most of us spending more time inside this year than usual due to the coronavirus pandemic, at least the year was still packed with some wonderful British period dramas to watch.
Meanwhile, on television we were introduced to Nicholas Ralph in All Creatures Great and Small, and Claes Bang in Dracula, plus established actors such as Iain Glen in The Windermere Children, John Boyega in Small Axe, Philip Glenister in Belgravia, and Theo James in Sanditon.
Over the past few months, we asked you to vote for 2020’s best actor in a British period drama.
Now that we’ve counted up all 90,043 votes, we can reveal the Top 10, with the winning actor receiving over an incredible 64.14% of all the votes…
